Wellness & Vaccinations

Caring for an animal companion isn’t something you do some of the time. It takes a lifelong commitment. If you wait until your pet becomes ill to bring them in for veterinary care, you could be compromising their chances at enjoying a long, healthy life. Instead, focus on being proactive about your pet’s care, keeping them healthy and preventing illness and disease whenever possible. This is the concept behind wellness care, and it’s one of the most important components of your pet’s ongoing health and happiness. Vineyard Veterinary Hospital offers comprehensive wellness services to help each patient we serve achieve a lifetime of good health.

Through these annual or semi-annual visits, your pet will receive regular physical exams, a customized vaccination plan, parasite prevention and control, nutrition and weight management, behavioral counseling, routine diagnostic testing and anything else deemed necessary to keep them well. Our doctors will work closely with you and get to know your pet so that we can develop a more personalized approach to your companion’s health care. We know your pet is unique, and we want to create a system of care that will support his or her specific needs through every stage of life – from puppy or kittenhood on through the golden years.

By seeing your pet regularly, we are also able to identify potential medical conditions before they’ve had a chance to develop into a more serious and costly problem. When we catch illness and disease in its early stages, we can address it right away, which can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome. Early detection and disease prevention through wellness care can add years to your pet’s life and improve the quality of those years exponentially.

Another big part of our wellness services, and something which sets our clinic apart from others in the area, is our focus on client education. We believe that you, as your pet’s caregiver, are also their biggest advocate and most trusted ally. That’s why, in everything we do, we work hard to include you as an active participant in your pet’s health care. We want to arm you with all of the tools, education and support you need to keep your companion happy and healthy year-round, in between vet visits.

Finally, but certainly not of less importance, routine wellness visits allow our doctors and support staff to develop a relationship with you, and forge an important, lifelong bond with your pet. It is through this trust and familiarity that we are better able to provide your companion with the best possible chance of enjoying a long, healthy life. At Vineyard Veterinary Hospital, we know you want the absolute best for your pet, and we share that very same goal. It starts with a foundation of wellness care.

      In the last 10 years Dr. Totman has cared for all of my fur babies with expertise and compassion that is unparalleled in Temecula. The happiest day is when you get your pet, the saddest day is when you say goodbye to your pet. And with all the things that happen to your pet then and in between, you want expert care in a family-owned environment vs. a corporate sales-oriented one. No one wants to think of that worst day. When that day comes though, as it did for me this week, you want a vet and staff who is sensitive to your pet's needs, comfort, and your grief. You want a vet who loves his patient, and you get that with Dr. Totman and his staff.

      Thank you so much for seeing my boy Chief. Our vets office was closed and my boy needed to be seen immediately. Not only did they fit us in, they stayed late, after closing, to ensure my boy was taken care of and I was put at ease. I can't thank you all enough
